Editor’s Note April 2024

Caitlin Eaton

Hey there, We Like Sewing readers! Earth Day is April 22, and our brand-new April issue is all about sustainable sewing, scrapbusting, and making earth-friendly choices. If you love working with denim, then you’re in luck, because we have three fun and thrifty sewing projects made in this durable fabric. Turn a thrifted denim jacket into a quilted beauty, get organized with a denim storage box, and turn your old jeans into a chic denim oven mitt. If you love transforming your fabric scraps into colorful quilt projects, then Meg Healy’s playful picnic blanket and Cathy Perlmutter’s pineapple quilt block are right up your alley. Ditch disposable single-use paper towels by making the switch to reusable “paperless” towels with an article and pattern from Dana Rebmann. Whether you head to your local thrift store or empty out your existing fabric stash, these upcycled sewing projects are a great way to celebrate Earth Day.

Happy sewing,
